Paralympian Tom Aggar wins global award – again!

British Paralympic champion and former QE pupil Tom Aggar (1995-2002) continues to dominate his sport. He was named 2010 World Rowing Adaptive Crew of the Year by the sport’s international governing body – for the second year in a row

The award winners were announced at World Rowing’s annual gala dinner at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley.
The accolade follows a season during which he remained unbeaten in the adaptive men’s single scull and improved his own World Best time. In November 2010, he trounced the opposition at the World Rowing Championships, winning gold by a 13-second margin to secure his third Championships title.

Tom won gold at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics and has already been named in the GB Rowing Team for the London Paralympics in 2012.

He started rowing as part of rehabilitation programme, following an accident in 2005 that left him paralysed. He trains under coach Tom Dyson and is currently a Sports Sciences MSc student at Brunel University.
